Playing with Embossing Paste

Happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a card that I made with Wendi Vecchi Embossing Paste and Simon Says Stamp diecut (All Season Tree).
 *Simon Says Stamp ALL SEASONS TREE Dies S175
 Basically I made the stencil with the tree diecut.

Virginia, the texture and variations in tone are simply beautiful on your tree image. I love that you made your own stencil. The texture of your stitches is a nice dimensional element. Love your DP, too.

Such a pretty card - and your stenciled tree is so pretty with its varying shades and dimension! I am stencil-challenged, but your cards and certainly your challenge, are sparking some flames. May have to give my "one" stencil some play time!
